Border Arrests Go Down 29 Percent In June; Trump Looks To Supreme Court For Wall

Trump 400 Miles Border Wall

President Donald Trump is making progress in containing the border crossing crisis, with arrests of migrants dropping 29 percent in the month of June.

The Border Patrol’s approximately 95,000 June arrests represents a dip from 133,000 the previous month, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Trump’s ICE raids — relatively limited in scope — have commenced after several weeks of partisan wrangling and Trump administration in-fighting. Trump first announced the effort on Twitter on June 18. A politically motivated leak of Trump’s plans stalled the raids, but the Department of Homeland Security is now internally investigating its own acting secretary Kevin McAleenan for possible involvement in the leaking.

On June 24, Mexico reportedly sent troops to its borders with both the United States and Guatemala/Belize after heated negotiations in which Trump threatened to impose a tariff on Mexican goods coming into the United States.

The fruits of this effort have yet to be measured by July’s border crossing numbers.

Ultimately, the fate of America will be determined by President Trump’s ability to change the immigration laws that provide amnesty for illegal border crossers, and by President Trump’s ability to build the Wall.

Trump has appealed to the Supreme Court to access the Defense Department money that he needs to secure our country.

Military Times reports:

The Trump administration on Friday asked the Supreme Court to lift a freeze on Pentagon money it wants to use to build sections of a border wall with Mexico.

Two lower courts have ruled against the administration in a lawsuit over the funding. Last week, a divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco kept in place a lower court ruling preventing the government from tapping Defense Department counterdrug money to build high-priority sections of wall in Arizona, California and New Mexico.

At stake in the case is billions of dollars that would allow Trump to make progress on a major 2016 campaign promise heading into his race for a second term. Trump ended a 35-day government shutdown in February after Congress gave him approximately $1.4 billion in border wall funding, far less than the $5.7 billion he was seeking. Trump then declared a national emergency to take cash from other government accounts to use to construct sections of wall.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Makes Attempt to Nab Traitorous Leakers

Published

on

On July 12, 2020, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows announced that he gave several pieces of information to suspected leakers.

According to Axios, Meadows has proceeded to do this “to reporters — a trap that would confirm his suspicions.”

“Meadows told me he was doing that,” commented one former White House official. “I don’t know if it ever worked.”

The Trump administration has been plagued with leaks since day one. Meadows has taken it upon himself to find the leakers and expose them for subverting President Trump’s agenda.

One leak that recently infuriated Trump was involved an alleged Russian plot to pay the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers.

Trump was also furious when the New York Times revealed that the Secret Service took him down to the bunker while riots raged outside the White House.

Although Meadows has not caught any high-profile leakers so far, a source close to Meadows said he is “focused on national security leaks and could care less about the palace intrigue stories.”

However, during a recent podcast with Ted Cruz, Meadows revealed that they discovered and fired a federal employee who was caught leaking information about a White House social media executive order.

Trump will ultimately need to get his house in order if he wants to keep his agenda coherent and intact.

One of the overarching themes of the Trump administration has been in its inability to tame subversive advisers and other actors within the administration.

This allows for Trump’s America First agenda to be derailed while legacy institutions like the defense industry benefit greatly.

D.C. is in desperate need of a cleanse and it starts within the executive branch.
